PAM Level 2

course thumbnailThis new three-day course builds on Seiche’ s Level 1 course to develop practical PAM knowhow for troubleshooting problems, deployment and more advanced use of PAMGuard for mitigation.

It is aimed at delegates with some PAM experience or who have completed Level 1. A scientific background is preferred, ideally in biology and marine sciences. The skills developed on the course can be applied to all PAM equipment currently in the marketplace. Delegates will have a mix of interactive sessions, lectures and hands-on access to equipment.

The course begins by refreshing delegates’ knowledge on sound in water, marine mammal acoustics, PAM and PAMGuard. It moves on to explore advanced settings for identifying and localizing marine mammal species. This will then be applied using real-life data for projects requiring mitigation – such as shutdowns on seismic surveys.

How to troubleshoot problems with both hardware and software will be covered, drawing on Seiche’s extensive experience of in-field support. Delegates will be able to take a closer look at the inner workings of the kit in a hands-on session. The course finishes with practical demonstrations of the best deployment methods of PAM kit, with seismic vessels specifically in mind.
